  • I used real butter, not this disgusting margarine crud. Using butter made from milk produced by grass-fed cattle makes this a more KETO friendly dish. Also margarine has trans fats. Ewww. - 12/11/16

  • I've used this recipe with olive oil rather than marge for many years, though recently I've been steaming or microwaving the asparagus instead.
    If you don't have fresh garlic, dried minced garlic or garlic powder both work well. So does a sprinkle of chicken or vegetable bouillon powder.
